Matching you to the right destination and the right venue.

Famils

Famil  [Fah-mill] noun;

  1. Short for familiarisation program, it is an opportunity for people to experience a region, product or package.
A famil is the best way to really understand a venue and destination.

Whether your event brief requires an upmarket private dining room, a boardroom with a view, a venue with a local produce menu, or even a ‘secret’ venue for a product launch, we can help.

Our famil program allows you to explore the venues and the destination for yourself. Meet the suppliers, taste the food, hit the shops and dip your toes into the water.
